Message from the Principal:
Hello Rocklin Merryhill Families!!
The 2016-2017 school year has gotten off to a great start. Our students have made the transition to their new classrooms with very few “bumps in the road” and have been excited to engage in new learning experiences.
The children are enjoying our water play days, special themes and accompanying dress-up days, as well as many special events! We have many more activities planned for August. We are excited to have an obstacle course on campus August 11 and looking forward to our annual Night Slide on Friday, August 19. We’ll have food and drinks for everyone. So, save the date and plan to “slide the night away!” The students will enjoy a puppet show on August 29. Parents, don’t forget about Back to School Night on August 31.
We have a special event planned for our local law enforcement officers. On August 16, we will invite members of the Rocklin Police, Placer County Sheriffs and California Highway Patrol to stop by for coffee and doughnuts, and a “Survival Kit” to take with them. We want to show those folks who protect us and our communities that we appreciate their efforts on our behalf. We are asking for donations of items for the survival kits: Starburst, Lifesavers, Payday, Hershey Kisses, Gum, Tootsie Rolls, Peppermint Patties, Snickers and Mounds bars. There is a red donation can in the front office. Thank you in advance for your support. Please feel free to speak with Aubrey or me if you have any questions or concerns.
Have you considered becoming a Merryhill Ambassador? Many of our families have already taken advantage of this opportunity to earn tuition credits. For more information, please see Sue or Aubrey.
As always, we appreciate your continued trust in Merryhill Rocklin to provide your children with the highest quality of care and education possible.

News From Our Education Department
For Parents and Teachers
“Teachers change the world one child at a time.” – Unknown
Nut Free: We are a NUT FREE school. We do have some students with nut allergies and appreciate your help in keeping all of our children safe and healthy.
California Licensing Regulations require that parents sign children in and out, with drop-off and pick-up times, and a complete, legible signature. We will be highlighting your sign-in/out sheets on those days when you forget to sign in or out!
Tuition Options: We appreciate that you make every effort to make your tuition payments on time. As you are aware, tuition payments are due on Monday of each week (or on your child’s first day of attendance). To save you time, the headache of having to remember your checkbook every Monday and to avoid those pesky late fees, consider enrolling in our automatic payment program at no charge. Please talk to Sue or Aubrey for more information.
Product Recall Binder: As a courtesy to our families we have a Product Recall binder in the front office. We post recall notices for products that our children or their siblings might use. We hope you find this information helpful.
Art Files: Please remember to check them at least once a week to pick up any correspondence from the office or teachers, along with your child’s amazing art work.
Clothing and Nap Items: Remember to update your child’s extra clothing as the seasons change and your child grows! Please label all of their items so we can return anything that may be forgotten at the end of the day. Any soiled items will be placed in plastic bags and put into your child’s cubby. Each child needs a blanket and crib size sheet for rest time. Sheets and blankets must be taken home on Fridays (or you child’s last day of attendance during the week), laundered and returned on the first day of attendance.
LTL Files: Links to Learning files are available on the last day of each month. These files provide you with information about the skills your child will learning in the upcoming month, as well as a snapshot of what has been accomplished in the current month through the work you will find in the folder.
Merryhill Elementary School: If you are interested in having your child stay with Merryhill School for kindergarten and beyond, please visit our elementary campus at 1115 Orlando Ave. in Roseville, just off of I-80 and Riverside Ave. The school contact information is 916-783-3010 or email@example.com.
